Hospices of Hope Moldova was launched in 2016 and works to establish a sustainable, national network of small hospice organisations in Moldova. Rather than working with a country partner HOHM is working with independent organisations across the country.
So far the network includes five hospices. These are:
- Hospice Aripile Sperantei (Wings of Hope) in Orhei
- Hospice Angelus in Soroca
- Hospice Angelus in Ocnita
- Hospice Taraclia and
- a new hospice organisation in Cahul
Services provided by the network organisations are primarily through home visits. The service in Cahul is integrated with a local public hospital. whilst the state will cover some of the costs of home visits, there is still a considerable shortfall and there is extreme poverty within the country.
Funding secured by Hospices of Hope Moldova and provided by the Bristol Myers Squibb Foundation and Medicor has greatly strengthened the sustainability of the hospice organisations and has given them a brighter future.
